  1. Are those rates inclusive of meals ? Cannot imagine staying at one of those isolated above the sea places and having to go searching for breakfast, lunch and dinner ๐Ÿ˜†
  2. Meaning the TWU-NKG leg on 22 Jan will most likely be an empty ferry flight ?! ๐Ÿ˜„
  3. For 9M-MXE, it's probably because she was stranded at BKI during past five days for some reason or another ..... ๐Ÿ˜€
  4. I'm guessing their very impressive rail and road networks would allow PVG, HGH and NKG to serve the whole population base in that corner of China Plus, you would expect the traffic to be purely O&D, so interlining not needed. So might as well operate from the less busy airport, where fees should be lower ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  5. https://www.mavcom.my/en/2023/11/10/air-traffic-rights-bulletin-october-2023/ Oooh, BKI-KIX ๐Ÿ˜€ We have not seen that in anyone's plans for a very long while
  6. That should be sufficient to generate a fourth - "WOW" !! ๐Ÿ˜†
  7. The text in article has been edited, the headline is still glaring though ๐Ÿ˜
  8. For China, I will opine that the way their real estate sector has performed in the last couple of years would not have afforded anymore the heady sense of rising wealth that had driven much of the consumer spending and confidence pre-pandemic. And leisure travel / holidays would be one of the first items to sacrifice in any tightening of the purse strings Also, I think it's also likely policies / rules are in place to encourage more Chinese domestic tourism (that is one huge industry there that has to be rebuilt) and at same time 'discourage' foreign travel / holidays to lessen money flowing out of the country. Which is fair enough really, we too have also seen surge in our MY domestic tourism ๐Ÿ˜€
  9. Of the Smarties/M&M varieties ?! ๐Ÿ˜
  10. Much as BKI appear to be the apple in Capital A's eyes, should not distract from reality they too have substantially downscale operations ex BKI to the few Chinese stations (eg PKX, WUH ... ) and MFM terminated It is good though to see they are responding quickly to market demand/reactions
  11. Overflown Mt K at 43,000 ft - nah, not gonna be serious about making BKI stopover I don't think ๐Ÿ˜
  12. https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2023/10/11/kk-airport-expansion-on-the-cards-says-loke/?fbclid=IwAR0-zQ7IuTnZZ26N7IgztSC3I-lF1cnv3lYJuMnbHoos1MlL_A6oK8SMXqc (thanks to post at the 'other' forum) ๐Ÿ˜€ So probably safe to assume relocation of kkia is off the table for the forseeable future
  13. Apologies in advance if I'm 'politically incorrect' here, but I am of opinion those personnel who switched jobs for whatever reason - be it personal preference, financial advantage, career advancement ... etc - should have weighed in potential risk(s) of getting onboard an unproven outfit into their job switching decision Yes it's unfortunate sadly, but it's daily fare in the employment scene ๐Ÿ™
  14. Another angle - even if there was sufficient intelligence known to suggest the airline was close to collapse, denying them the AOC would have landed blame of the 'stranded paxs' squarely on MAVCOM's lap As it is now, MAVCOM can play the role of one who is assisting to resolve paxs' grudges against the collapsed airline So, ...... ๐Ÿ˜
  15. What ? In same manner as the Israelis were 'shocked' few days ago ? ๐Ÿ™„
  16. Wonder if anyone ever considered uplifting meals from other stations that have proper catering facilities instead - SIN, BKK, CGK ...? ๐Ÿ˜€ Sure it's going to be costly, but at silly situations, absurdity may prove useful
  17. Gone farcical ๐Ÿ™„ https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2023/09/14/mas-food-safe-for-consumption-assures-loke
  18. Carrier to serve Sabah and Sarawak viable, say analysts (msn.com) Shifting objectives/priorities and mobile goal posts ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
  19. Another opinion, no need to feed too well prior to arrival into Bangkok city itself - there should be more than enough culinary excitements there to satisfy the resulting expanded appetites ๐Ÿ˜
  20. (44) Scarlettๆœ‰่ฏ่ฏด โ€” ๅœจ้ฉฌๆฅ่ฅฟไบš็š„ไธญๅ›ฝไบบ็ป™ๆฒ™ๅทดๅฑฑๆ‰“ๆ นๅทž่ฎฎๅ‘˜็š„ไธ€ๅฐๆ—…ๆธธ็Œฎ่ฎฎๅ€ก่ฎฎ๏ผๅ†่ฐˆไธœ้ฉฌๅฑฑๆ‰“ๆ นๆ—…ๆธธ๏ผ ELOPURA ๏ผˆ็พŽไธฝ็š„ๅฐ้•‡๏ผ‰ - YouTube Well, if ever you need evidence to substantiate ..... ๐Ÿ˜ (skip to 26:00) But seriously, I think this couple do have some pretty valid opinions and suggestions that hopefully can reach the tourism authorities ๐Ÿ˜„
  21. I think we should understand that this narrative about having our own airline operations as mean of 'easing burden' of the flying public, increase connectivity to the state, ..... etc, all those benevolent attributes - is not new, and for Sabah, there is a case history already ๐Ÿ˜‰ Back in the 70's, when timber and oil money was flowing into the state's coffers, those were the promises and plans - a couple of 707's were roped in by Sabah Air. What eventually transpired was the 9M-TDM and 9M-TMS fiasco, which helped to drain the state's coffers quite a bit โ˜น๏ธ But back then there wasn't social media where such things could have been publicly scrutinized, we only got to read about it when a newspaper publisher decided to go 'opposition' and ran a whole series of articles about the subject in the run up to state elections - which the incumbent gahmen lost ๐Ÿ˜
  22. With regard to this issue and particularly in Sabah context, I fear 'sink' may prove dominant over 'swim' My fear is tgat if they do go headlong into this, the proverbial bottomless pit will be opened up ..... ๐Ÿ˜•
  23. I don't quite catch the correlation ?! ๐Ÿ˜ Overly flattering for the insect, oblivious towards the textile design ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ™„ Can someone help me out here please ?! ๐Ÿ˜‰
